📅 Date Formats

If date_format is not provided or is empty, the PHP Intl library is used to determine the date format based on the locale specified in the locale query parameter.

A custom date format can be specified by passing a string to the date_format parameter.

The required format is to use format string characters from PHP's date function with brackets around the part representing the year.

When the contribution year is equal to the current year, the characters in brackets will be omitted.


Date Format Result
d F[, Y]
"2020-04-14" => "14 April, 2020"

"2023-04-14" => "14 April"
"2020-04-14" => "14/4/2020"

"2023-04-14" => "14/4/2023"
"2020-04-14" => "2020.4.14"

"2023-04-14" => "4.14"
M j[, Y]
"2020-04-14" => "Apr 14, 2020"

"2023-04-14" => "Apr 14"

ℹ️ How these stats are calculated

This tool uses the contribution graphs on your GitHub profile to calculate which days you have contributed.

To include contributions in private repositories, turn on the setting for "Private contributions" from the dropdown menu above the contribution graph on your profile page.

Contributions include commits, pull requests, and issues that you create in standalone repositories.

The longest streak is the highest number of consecutive days on which you have made at least one contribution.

The current streak is the number of consecutive days ending with the current day on which you have made at least one contribution. If you have made a contribution today, it will be counted towards the current streak, however, if you have not made a contribution today, the streak will only count days before today so that your streak will not be zero.

Note You may need to wait up to 24 hours for new contributions to show up (Learn how contributions are counted)

📤 Deploying it on your own

It is preferable to host the files on your own server and it takes less than 2 minutes to set up.

Doing this can lead to better uptime and more control over customization (you can modify the code for your usage).

You can deploy the PHP files on any website server with PHP installed including Heroku and Vercel.

The Inkscape dependency is required for PNG rendering, as well as Segoe UI font for the intended rendering. If using Heroku, the buildpacks will install these for you automatically.

Deploy to Vercel

Vercel is the recommended option for hosting the files since it is free and easy to set up. Watch the video below or expand the instructions to learn how to deploy to Vercel.

Note PNG mode is not supported since Inkscape will not be installed but the default SVG mode will work.

📺 Click here for a video tutorial on how to self-host on Vercel

Instructions for deploying to Vercel

Step-by-step instructions for deploying to Vercel

Option 1: Deploy to Vercel quickly with the Deploy button (recommended)

  1. Click the Deploy button below

Deploy with Vercel

  1. Create your repository by filling in a Repository Name and clicking "Create"
  2. Visit this link to create a new Personal Access Token (no scopes required)
  3. Scroll to the bottom and click "Generate token"
  4. Add the token as a Config Var with the key TOKEN:

vercel environment variables

  1. Click "Deploy" at the end of the form
  2. Once the app is deployed, click the screenshot of your app or continue to the dashboard to find your domain to use in place of


Option 2: Deploy to Vercel manually

  1. Sign in to Vercel or create a new account at
  2. Use the following command to clone the repository: git clone If you plan to make changes, you can also fork the repository and clone your fork instead. If you do not have Git installed, you can download it from
  3. Navigate to the cloned repository's directory using the command cd github-readme-streak-stats
  4. Switch to the "vercel" branch using the command git checkout vercel
  5. Make sure you have the Vercel CLI (Command Line Interface) installed on your system. If not, you can download it from
  6. Run the command vercel and follow the prompts to link your Vercel account and choose a project name
  7. After successful deployment, your app will be available at <project-name>
  8. Open this link to create a new Personal Access Token on GitHub. You don't need to select any scopes for the token.
  9. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Generate token"
  10. Visit the Vercel dashboard at and select your project. Then, click on "Settings" and choose "Environment Variables".
  11. Add a new environment variable with the key TOKEN and the value as the token you generated in step 9, then save your changes
  12. To apply the new environment variable, you need to redeploy the app. Run vercel --prod to deploy the app to production.


Note To set up automatic Vercel deployments from GitHub, make sure to turn off "Include source files outside of the Root Directory" in the General settings and use vercel as the production branch in the Git settings.

Deploy on Heroku

Heroku is another great option for hosting the files. All features are supported on Heroku and it is where the default domain is hosted. Heroku is not free, however, and you will need to pay between $5 and $7 per month to keep the app running. Expand the instructions below to learn how to deploy to Heroku.

Instructions for deploying to Heroku

Step-by-step instructions for deploying to Heroku

  1. Sign in to Heroku or create a new account at
  2. Visit this link to create a new Personal Access Token (no scopes required)
  3. Scroll to the bottom and click "Generate token"
  4. Click the Deploy button below

Deploy to Heroku

  1. Add the token as a Config Var with the key TOKEN:

heroku config variables

  1. Click "Deploy App" at the end of the form
  2. Once the app is deployed, you can use <your-app-name> in place of

Deploy on your own

You can transfer the files to any webserver using FTP or other means, then refer to for installation steps.
